Warren Appleby’s CD, IRON FORGED IN FIRE, combines a touch of modern Prog with the Classic Hard Rocks traditions found on his previous CDs. Fans of Prog-Metal, Classic Metal, and Hard Rock new to Warren’s music will learn what long time fans have always known – this guy ROCKS!!!
Warren brings crushing riffs, heavy rhythms, and tasteful solo’s, inspired by his hero’s Jeff Beck, Brian May, and Ritchie Blackmore to the IRON FORGED IN FIRE cd. Listening to lots of Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, and Rush this past year has inspired Warren to add some very cool synthesizer and acoustic guitar soundscapes to complement the tracks. Listen close and you’ll also hear a few vocal tracks thrown in for good measure!!!
An accomplished guitarist and bassist, Warren plays all instruments on IRON FORGED IN FIRE. All tracks are original compositions with the exception of the bonus tenth track – a very cool version of the holiday classic – Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.
Warren’s CDs have received high praises from music sites/publications – Metallian, MetalCore Fanzine, Detritus, Metal Dreams, & Guitar Noise. Japanese radio shows Yellowbeat and Gone Fishing for Blue Skies have made Warren’s music a staple of their weekly programs.
